Samia is a 31 year old woman who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, with her husband. She has been selling children’s clothing from her house since 1997. Her clients are her family members, friends and neighbors.

Samia settled on this business because she wanted to be independent in her work and also to supplement her husband’s income. When she first started her business, Samia had some financial issues and couldn’t purchase a lot of merchandise. Now, however, she is special in her field because she owns a large variety of merchandise.

Samia has requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase more merchandise for her business. This is her third loan cycle and she has always paid on time. In the future, she plans on expanding by opening a shop.
